Start 5/16/2019 4:00 PM

Description How can you prepare your learners to succeed in the workforce? Find out what employers say are essential skills for today's workforce. This session shows you how to connect transferable skills in the classroom to the workplace. This online workshop is formatted into two 90-minute meetings, where participants convene at the same time. It is intended for ESL instructors as well as ABE/ABE instructors. Participants who complete Part 1 will automatically be registered for part 2. Thus, to attend Part 2 you must also have attended Part 1 on Tuesday, May 14, from 4:00 - 5:30 pm. Certificates of attendance will be provided to participants who attend both parts. However, you must only register once; participants do not need to register themselves for part 2. (Register for the Part 1, May 14, 2019, here.)
Goals The goal is to provide background on skills transferable from the classroom to the workplace and to teach students how to articulate those skills. Session 1 emphasizes the need to directly teach transferable skills and the connection between using these skills in the classroom and in the workplace. With an overview and comparison of four frameworks, Session 1 provides participants an opportunity to reflect on the practice and importance of teaching transferable skills in the classroom.
Location Online - instructions will be emailed to participants prior to the workshop.
